May lose they're cabin/property.

News to me that non natives have had property leases from the leech lake band,and with with two casino's on the rez the band wants they're land back.

CASS LAKE (AP) -- Some cabin owners who lease land on Leech, Cass or Boy lakes are being told by the Leech Lake Band of Chippewa that their leases may not be renewed because the tribe needs the land.

Tribal Chairman Eli Hunt said the band is evaluating leases as they come up for renewal because the tribe needs more space for its members and businesses.

Band members have been returning to the reservation because they now can find jobs there, primarily because of the two casinos on the reservation. The unemployment rate for band members has dropped from about 60 percent to 30 percent to 40 percent because of the casinos, Hunt said.

The influx is causing a housing shortage. The tribe has about 200 applications for housing and an average of five people coming in every day looking for places to build houses.

So,looks like these folks shot themselves in the foot catering to the casino's.

From what I have heard this could total more than 350 cabins/pieces of property. I am uncertain how these leases were done but from the sounds of it most of the cabins are not moveable unlike the cabins that were built on the DNR 99 year lease properties.
But in my eyes this is just another native American ploy to get back at the white man, there are thousands and thousands of acres of vacant land on the res. There is zero reason they need to take back this land. I would strike a match to my cabin and walk away before I would leave it standing for them even at a discounted rate.

Yes zero reason!!!

This is property was entered into lease agreements, not some piece of property that was "stolen" as you feel it is. But if you want to do your research, what we call native americans ( a true oxymoron ) are not actually native to this continent but actually came across the bearing straights chasing the mastodon because they had pretty much depleted their food sources and thought they needed to follow them or starve to death.
Sound familiar?? they pretty much have depleted their food sources everywhere and anywhere they have resided thus they became nomadic people due too them not understanding that our natural resources are not unlimited resources.

Very correct with this statement. Rape and pillage the land and move on. I actually however wouldn’t let my cabin just go to them for whatever price, move it or burn it. I also would never have the problem these lease tenants have cause I never would have been interested in a lease from them to start with.

Fact is they have every right to take the land back. It was leased, not sold. So as much as it may suck for those affected they knew what they were getting into when they signed on. It also really doesn't matter if they want to put housing on it or raise chipmunks, it's their land.

No sense trying to turn it into a race issue.

I wouldn't be too surprised if the cabins ultimately are allowed to stay but the rent increases by 10X. Can't afford it? That's the tenants' problem.

How many thousands of acres of vacant land is there on these reservations that they could build public housing for all these homeless people how long ago?? You know as well as I it is nothing more than a power play on their side.
